Street View's name doesn't fully capture what the service is good for. Yes, it makes getting the feel for a new city or campus cheap and easy, but it's perfectly capable of providing shots of places other than streets as well. Google has recently taken Street View to some of the most impressive areas of Iceland and is doing its part to share the region's beauty with the rest of the world.

Areas of Iceland covered include the Gullfoss Waterfall, the Haukadalur Geothermal Area (known locally as "Geysir"), and the Kerið volcanic crater lake. These are some of the most beautiful views you can find anywhere, reminding us that nature is quite the sight to behold.

Naturally, there are more gorgeous vistas to explore. Hit up the full blog post below for a more detailed tour.
